Central Pacific Region

My Trip To Costa Rica

>
Since I traveled the world and worked in many different countries for four decades, I ended up  having friends all over the Globe. Some of them stayed back in the countries where we met, most, like myself, have moved on to new adventures in foreign places. My Friend George originally hails from Egypt, but after decades of moving from continent to continent and from country to country, he seems to have found his forever-home ??? in Costa Rica.
Since he had visited me a few times in Miami, it was now my time to visit him, so I spend the beginning of October with him and his very lovely family at their beautiful home in Playa Herradura.
.
Playa Herradura (Herradura Beach) is a coastal town on the Central Pacific Region of Costa Rica. It is located about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) north of Jacó in the province of Puntarenas. The name Herradura (horseshoe) refers to the bays horseshoe shape. The town has developed into an important tourist destinations in Costa Rica. This has been in part thanks to Los Suenos Resort and Marina. The resort and related amenities, including a full service five-star Marina, have positioned the town as the Fishing Capital of Costa Rica. The Marina is home to the largest fleet of Sports fishing boats in the country. Located right next door to Jaco Beach and 1 hour from Costa Rica’s primary International airport in San Jose, the Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO). Apparently,  Playa Herradura and the Jaco Beach region have become the most popular tourist destination in all of Costa Rica, far surpassing the regions where eco-tourism now plays a second fiddle to wild fun at the beach.

Before I left for CR, George asked me what I wanted to do during my stay, so he could organize some tours and excursions. Of course, traveling in CR was the last thing I wanted to do, and I let him know that. After all, (Pls forgive the arrogant tone of this – “Been there, done that”. 🙂
My Idea of a great vacation nowadays is lounging under a fan on a terrace, eating great meals cooked by others than myself and mostly, the company and conversations of good friends.
That was what I asked for, and that was what I got.
Thanks again George, Anna, Maria and Stefanie for having me and making my stay a wonderful one. 🙂
